Stretched Saddlebags

Been surfing through ebay for winter projects to the RG and have seen numerous stretched saddlebags in the $499-800 dollar range. Any advice on if they are POSs or have they just gotten that cheap?

Cheers

Personally, I wouldn't buy any bags that cost less than $800........

Just ordered a set for this bike last Thursday, which is something like the 4th or 5th set I've run (different bikes) and when it comes to body parts it really is a "you get what you pay for" deal. TopShop and BadDad (sometimes Yaffe LOL) are the ones I would personally recommend if your looking for just down stretched bags.

That's just my $.02, but, I only have $.01 after all

Good ain't cheap, cheap ain't good.......

Agreed. You get what you pay for. Top Shop, Bad Dad, CamTech Custom, TOL Design are all excellent products.

Thanks all, good advice and exactly what i thought. Now the decision, either do body work, or installed a Fuel Motto 107 kit, things that make a person go hum!!!

Cheers

you definitely don't need a jet pack to act like a goof ball

it's also about the fender and exhaust intergration

I'm narrowing down a fender theme first, then bags around it

I say that like the world's oldest turtle, deciding to click the BUYNOW button

I am still impressed with top shop stuff, will check out the other brands

I have to agree, looks will definitely make the biggest difference. I will have to get my rear fender repainted with the wife's pic;
